English teacher with 15 years' experience and English literature degrees from UC Berkeley (BA) and DePaul University (MA)

Methodology

I am a tutor for the American and UK online school programs, offering support to online students from grade 7 through university in English language and literature as well as social studies. Zoom-shared online curriculum support or individually tailored lessons are available.

Background

Teaching English language and literature for me is not a job, but a passion, and my primary goal is to help my students reach their learning objectives. As an American native speaker with English language and literature degrees in addition to TESOL teaching certification, I offer expert-level instruction in reading, writing, listening and speaking. I have a diverse professional background, having worked in book publishing in New York, on Wall Street as a marketing director, and as a teacher of English language and literature in North Africa for the past 15 years. I also do editing and proofreading for literary and technical writing.
